Ahad Saadi’s multi layered & multi textured new works that cherish with the inspiration from Iran’s mystical & philosophical culture. The artist currently works with this technique in the fields of contemporary illuminating, miniature, calligraphy, modern painting and sculpture.
Ahad Saadi was born in 1980 in Tabriz, Iran and has started his career in art in 1999. He gave the name Azarnegari to the technique which he evaluated individually, that has the meaning of drawing with fire; in this style, neither pencil nor any type of paint are being used, the very small pieces of textile are being burnt and pasted on top of each other. By pasting the textile pieces on top of each other, the image becomes deeper and stronger, sometimes a work can have twenty layers, and it might take three or four months to complete. Saadi has registered Azarnegari technique in 2008 officially by the Ministry of Culture of Iran in the capital, Tahran, as a new and unique style. In his works which are created with influences from Iran, Saadi is being nourished by his own feelings and the deepness of these arts. He produces works in strong connection with nature, philosophy, love, universe, and human. The artist combines the evolution, the energy of life gained with love and compassion, and its important relation with nature. Ahad Saadi’s multi layered and multi textured new works that cherish with the inspiration from Iran’s mystical and philosophical culture, are meeting their viewers. The exhibition could be seen from the 17th of September until the 31st of October in ART350 Gallery.
